Please join me in my efforts to support Autism Speaks! For a few hours I'll be "running" the Disney Half Marathon and Disney Marathon (the Goofy Challenge), but with your help we'll make a lasting impact for families affected by autism.
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 1 in 59 children is on the autism spectrum.
Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions. They empower people with autism and their families with resources, online tools and information covering the life span.
Autism Speaks enhances lives today and is accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
If this cause speaks to you, please join us and donate to Autism Speaks. Your support is greatly appreciated!
